This was inevitable, wasn’t it? The moment the new Hyundai i20 came out, comparisons to the segment benchmark, the Tata Altroz, were bound to happen. And so we did it. Raunak takes us through what’s good and what’s not so good about both cars and tries to make sense of the i20’s price while at it. It may have been a doozy when it got launched, but is Hyundai actually packing some value under those inflated prices? Only one way to find out! Watch and let us know what you think in the comments below!

  • Jinda rahenge to use karenge na premium features. Altroz is my choice for better safety. Although Thick A-Pillar and lagging touchscreen were the issues I faced when recently drove in hills. TATA should work on this. Btw I have ford aspire and waiting for iturbo Altroz to switch.

  • It's not about value conscious.. It's about your safety.....look like you got some goodies from Hyundai company...or you forget how to review car...AND most importantly what about safety rate (NCAP)of Hyundai I20. .. 5 star safety rated car NCAP...ALTROZ...YOU DUMBO

  • Hyundai fucked the exterior design 😆

  • I've rightly stopped watching Powerdrift videos since TenHut decided to not do reviews by himself. I've both i20 and Altroz and nexon in the family and i20 is really shitty. It's engine is no where refined and gear shifts feel a bit notchy at times. The interiors are really dull and plastic quality is pathetic given the price. I20 is 100kgs lighter than previous generation and that's not a thing to boast about. It's not carbon fiber. Safety matters over useless features. Also, the touchscreen in Altroz is not laggy. I even like the design with the easy pull menus on each side. Interface on i20 is boring.

  • Tata altroz is quite value for money, it offers what you pay for. Similar for i20, it offers what you pay for. The premium which we pay is justified. Both the cars look quite good, although I like altroz's looks more but that would just be me. i20 undoubtedly has better quality interiors and much better engines. And of course more features

  • You mention about the thickness of the A-pillar. It's like that on all cars considered to be safe. Be it the ecosport or the Vento or any other. What, you never mention a thing on safety and you complain of the thickness of the A-pillar wtf dude.... You want it the size of an Alto or an Spresso dafaq? And to talk about the fit and finish of the cabin you'd better not check the under half of the dash of the i20 cus it feels like trash.... whereas the Altroz has an even built throughout the cabin. Me personally feel like this face-off or whatever you guys wanna call it was total garbage.

  • Tata Motors have been doing well lately and is currently No 3 by sales in India. I reckon they can become second largest car company with the Launch of HBX, Safari and Altroz turbo, also EV vehicles on every segment. Interesting few years ahead for Tata motors. Indian consumers prioritising on safety thanks to efforts by Tata/Mahindra

  • I agree with everyone else here, you have not spoken at all about Altroz 5* Safety rating... the Hyundai is not even tested, and plus it has lost 100kgs (your own comment) which could make the car weaker on safety aspect. I am sure i20 is safer car than most others (cough Marutis) but unless the car is tested we would never know... SAFETY is and should be an important aspect in all of your future videos!
